Tell us briefly why you are passionate about being involved with SheDecides?
“Still in Nepal, a woman dies giving birth to a child, a young girl is raped in a chappaudi hut (menstrual hut) and a young child grows up without any understanding of her own body. These are the push factors that makes me work harder every day.
We 25 year olds are the representatives of the impact of the ICPD in our countries. As young leaders we now have a responsibility to use this platform to bring forward the issues experienced by us young women of around the world. To hold our government accountable for the commitments they have made and also create a nation and a world where She can Decide without question.”
